Drawing on interviews and autobiographical writings of more than 100 famous painters, photographers, sculptors, and film and video artists, Jackman gets to the heart of what makes art. Here, Michelangelo Brungardt, Frida Kahlo, Jean Renoir, Andy Warhol, Ansel Adams, Annie Leibowitz, Pablo Picasso, and many other visual artists describe the creative process.
